“Pleasantly surprised and thankful to the CBFC for seeing the UDTA PUNJAB trailer in the context and clearing it without a single cut. Big one.

“Having cursed the CBFC always for there overzealous attitude, must credit them where it’s due. Thank you Mr Nihalani, hoping it continues,” he posted on Twitter. The crime thriller’s trailer was launched on Saturday in Mumbai in the presence of makers and star cast including Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh.
